The objectives of this research project are to:
(1) fly oblique helicopter videography along the Beaufort Sea shoreline from the Alaska/Yukon border to the Northwest Territories/Nunavut border;
(2) using conventional methods, interpret helicopter videography and create an Environmental Sensitivity Index map. This will consist of a vector shapefile of shoreline types; and
(3) using satellite rad...

The western Canadian Arctic coast is one of the most rapidly changing coastlines in the world and among the most vulnerable to climate change. The causes of this vulnerability have been studied over the past decade. This project involves monitoring coast...
Principal Investigator:Solomon, Steve Licenced Year(s):
The primary objectives of the project are to map the coastline of the Canadian Beaufort Sea in terms of its sensitivity to coastal erosion and monitor changes in the coastline, and to collect information on the morphology of the coast and the sediments which compose it for use in developing and calibrating predictive models of coastal change. In order to achieve these objectives previously proven ...
Principal Investigator:Syvitski, J.P. Licenced Year(s):
(1) To emplace current meter and trap arrays into 50m water depth via helicopter; (2) To site survey deltas to ascertain information On their hydrology and sedimentology processes and Quaternary history; (3) To site survey (re survey) coastal sections to understand their stability and geological history....
